America’s President Donald Trump has raffled a bunch of feathers again after his latest sentiments during a rally held in North Carolina.
The US premiere had women fuming after asking his female supporters whether their husbands were okay with their presence at the event.
He then told the ladies they had good spouses who let them show up to events such as his.
"Anyway, I hope your husbands are okay with it. Are they okay? They are okay. You have good husbands,” he said.
The president then asked his audience how many of his rallies they had attended and that seemed to tickle them.
“Oh there they are. How many of these have you come to? What is this, number what? Like, 90?” Trump asked.
His comments sparked a heated debate on Twitter with a lot of people terming Trump as sexist and disrespectful.
A couple of Twitter users said the US leader’s behaviour was misogynistic and mind-shuttering.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported a hair-raising video of a few thugs robbing a Cash in Transit (CIT) vehicle at gun-point was recently shared on Twitter by Nkulipp.
The incident took place in the Florida Witpoortjie petrol station yesterday morning. In the clip, thugs can be seen waiting for the security guards to fetch the money inside the gas station store and then approach the vehicle before they walk towards the guards, guns drawn, demanding the bags of money.
Meanwhile two other robbers, also wielding rifles, kept a lookout at the front end of the CIT vehicle. Once their counterparts secure the bags of cash, they jump into their respective vehicles and flee the scene.
There were no reported fatalities. It is also unclear how much money they got away with. Stunned Twitter users however shared their thoughts on the harrowing incident.
